Job Description

The communications team shapes One Acre Fund's global brand and local reputation across Sub-Saharan Africa. One Acre Fund currently serves more than 600,000 smallholder farmers in six core countries, and we aim to serve one million farmers by 2020. Our fifteen-person team tells stories that carry globally and resonate locally. We work to shape international policy, build a strong reputation in each country, and inspire dynamic African leaders to join our growing organization.

In this role, you'll execute the organization's evolving marketing strategy to support our team as we grow. It's a unique opportunity to develop your marketing skills while contributing to an exciting global team.  

Responsibilities include:  

  • Social media – Set the organization’s social media strategy. Drawing upon research, industry news, and internally produced content, regularly draft and publish engaging content as part of a wider content calendar. When appropriate, coordinate with teams at partner organizations to execute global social media campaigns.
  • Website (SEO) – Maintain the organization’s website and blog—regularly updating and publishing content on the site to comply with SEO best practice.
  • Website (Project Management) – Manage major site changes in partnership with our web development partners, acting as the primary liaison for One Acre Fund’s teams.  
  • Digital analytics – Using common analytics tools (such as Google Analytics and Facebook Ads Manager), build and maintain existing dashboards to track performance and help improve strategy across our communication channels.
  • Email marketing – working within Campaign Monitor, partner with stakeholders across the organization to produce, publish, and improve all One Acre Fund's e-newsletters. 
  • Digital advertising – Support our online advertising efforts, publishing and maintaining paid campaigns on social media, and reorganizing our extensive Google AdWords program.
  • Administrative support – Assist in projects to keep the communications department running smoothly, such as supporting the team’s internal systems and tools.

  • Experience managing websites using a content management system such as WordPress, Drupal, or Joomla
  • Experience producing and publishing email marketing campaigns using a large service provider such as Campaign Monitor, MailChimp, or Constant Contact
